Top Ten Pokemon Shippings

The Top Ten

1 Ash and Serena

Nowadays we see people sharing their opinions here and especially screaming out, that Ash and Serena are meant to be for one another. And I personally think this is true. Like, hello! It's rather special don't you think, that really, after such a long time from meeting in childhood, Serena still remembered Ash and had feelings for him? Don't comment badly on this - it's true because after that incident Serena never saw Ash again, or knew his name, until she was a teenager and saw him in the middle of a Pokemon battle. I kinda liked the idea of downright, sharp-tongued Iris to be with solid, hard-working Ash, because it's rather funny, but honestly I think Ash and Serena are better together. And really, Ash only argued with her once, and Serena is always kind and helpful to him. Iris is really funny with Ash, in my opinion, but she's too hard with Ash and argues with him. Dawn? Oh, she's completely marvellous and is like Ash's female clone but really she's a bit hardheaded and rather ...more

I LOVE this pairing. For the first time we have a girl who has a canon crush on Ash (Misty was implied to like Ash mostly for the 4Kids dub, in the Japanese dub it was slightly implied). But a lot of people bash Serena's crush on Ash saying she's obsessed with him (Apparently forgetting Misty was far more possessive of Ash than Serena ever has been). Recent episodes have shown that Serena's love for Ash is the real deal, she knows him well enough to know when he's not being himself and pull him out of a funk accordingly. Serena appears to be closer than Ash than the rest of the Pokegirls, truth be told he seems to treat her better than he did the others. Ash has shown subtle hints of maybe liking her back such as: consistently putting what she wants above what he wants. Ash has established himself as someone who doesn't like to do feminine like things (clothes shopping, or dancing) and Ash consistently agreed with Serena's request of going to clothing/Jewelry stores, he hates dancing ...more

Best ship in my opinion and why the hell do other shipper come and give arrogant comment, can't you all just accept defeat, sorry to say but no amourshipper are arrogant, you people just go around and make up stuff saying how arrogant is amourshipper. I have never scene any amour going to other shipping videos, pics and comment how bad is misty, may, dawn and iris are but you people just can't be happy and let other people be happy, going to all amourshipping videos and comment how sick or bad this couple are or how worst is Serena, Sorry to say but you people really need to stop those stupid acts it's annoys lot of people, to anti amourshipper it's true you have your opinion but in your opinion it has no meaning cause your hate reason is so dumb like she hates her which Pokemon fan will believe that dumb everyone watched xy and saw how much she loved her Pokemon and so what she always cares about ash, there is nothing wrong in it even though it's a kid show it known as anime and most ...more

Hello you dummies Ash X Serena just because Serena didn't argue with him before the snowball fight was not proof that this ship is canon just more proof that this ship was crap Ash and Misty Belong Together Ash never wanted to be kissed by Serena and Ash took a foot back stating uncomfortable moments Serena is a crybaby who just wants attention Ash never wanted her to cosplay as him didn't you say there were a couple well no Serena is not coming to alola Serena just does things and she completely ignores Clement and Bonnie Ash and Serena being together is one-sided oh yeah and do not support this ship people send death threats to kids that don't support this ship kids that are six years old a motor shippers tell them to kill their selves and if you watch this anime for a ship don't watch Pokemon - Devthakur

2 Ash and Misty

The only person who Ash actually likes or has liked is Misty. Ash just never acted attracted towards anyone else. Sure, it may be hidden, but there are many moments low-key showing they like each other. All the other Ash related ones are one sided, or even no sided. They also have the most comparable personalities, both are rash, somewhat mean to each other, but both secretly care about one another a lot, and both actually train Pokemon. The other girls are either too girly, think they are better than anyone, or are just his friend.

It makes me sad to see a lot of people like these kind of shippings where one is rarely supportive of their 'friend,' and all both do is argue and make things worse for each other. Yes, arguing is caring or whatever blablabla... and fight like a married couple whatever. But even married couples have good moments & show can get through their arguments by being closer than before. Not ash & misty. They argue, and both need Brock (and Tracy) to help stop them arguing. I'm sorry, but how would that make any kind of 'good' relationship? The answer is, it honestly wouldn't. I can see why the divorce rate nowadays is so high, if people really think that relationships like ash & misty could honestly work out at all.

I know that Serena literally has a crush on Ash, but it's also so obvious that Misty and Ash should be together. I mean, seriously. She follows Ash on his quest to become a Pokemon master for no reason! Please don't say that Serena will be with Ash. I disagree completely.

Misty is the only girl Ash shows aattraction and feelings towards

3 May and Drew

I've seen almost every episode of Pokemon and I have to say that these two have the most chemistry, while they have their fights occasionally they still look out for each other and in my opinion come the closest to being canon from a lot of the popular ships

Yes! I support Ash and Misty, but this is good, too, and to be honest, this one is more likely.

How can you not love this ship! Everything about it is great! I hope they'll make a series for May in Johto. It's obvious that they both like each other and blush in front of each other!

It's so close to being canon ahh! Their ship is just too cute!

4 Ash and Dawn

Ash and dawn are just made for each other... Their friendship is so real... And dawn had her own goals in life rather than just travelling with ash... Ash has learnt so much with dawn... Those two are just the perfect couple... Dawn is the only female character in the pokemon series who has a central character just like ash... This clearly shows how important dawn was for ash... Also he has saved dawn so many times that one can not even count. Their chemistry is the thing which I loved the most about the diamond and pearl season... Also we can see that whenever Dawn has an option to chose between Ash and any other boy, she has always chosen Ash... She is just like Ash and shares an informal relationship with her. Dawn's piplup's reference shows that how important dawn is for him... And since they are just like each other the understand each other the most... Even Cynthia, the sinnoh champ knows that how important they are for each other... I just want this ship to be fixed permanently ...more

I love Ash and Dawn together! They are so cute together! They even had their own song! They should be together forever and ever! I don't know why people keep saying Ash and Dawn are more like siblings than lovers?! I personally think that Ash and Dawn is one true pairing and to be together! I don't know why others like and prefer Ash and Serena together. Ash and Serena's shipping is just too boring for me. I would always ship Ash and Dawn together even if nobody liked it! Ash and Dawn should be together in end instead of Ash and Serena be together. Ash and Dawn is my otp! Ash and Dawn together for the win!

"Dawn is not supposed to be with Paul or Kenny, they're not her type. Misty is too possessive and Serena is not ash's type. Ash was much closer with Dawn. They high five, Dawn cheered for ash in a cheerleader costume with her Pokémon. They have each other's back more. They are definitely much closer. Ash put all of his friend's needs before his, so that doesn't make Serena special at all. Serena is thinking of ash all the time and is trying to get ash to love her but it's definitely one sided while ash thinks of Serena as a friend and that's it, that's their relationship, strictly just friends no matter how much Serena wants to be more than friends. Dawn and ash have that relationship where there's more contact, support both ways and that bond that can never be broken. Dawn returned in the show later and ash was very happy to see her. Dawn was very emotional when ash left while Serena didn't. Clearly, Dawn's feelings for ash are much stronger than Serena's feelings for ash. When ...more

I personally love ash and dawn. Even though in the beginning they fought a lot but they always settled with an agreement. I used to like amourshipping but I realized that their whole relationship was based on their past. I can see why some people like amourshipping because of the kiss and everything but come on, doesn't it just seem like Serena is to nice. That is why I like ash and dawn because dawn can be really nice but can be mean in an argument. Some other reasons why I like ash and dawn is that ash and dawn have a unique relationship, don't get me wrong all of the other relationships are unique too but pearlshipping just stands out the most. Also, ash and dawn have the same emotions, movements and actions. I mean come on, which one do you think that is more important to ash, a handkerchief or his pikachu I think its pretty obvious. Also, In the unova series dawn came back! That's pretty big. That proves that dawn came from the sinnoh region just to see him. Dawn is one of the ...more

5 Ash and May

I do not know why I like this couple so much but it is my favorite. I like Ash and Serena too but I do not know the way Ash takes care of May is so sweet and he saved her a lot of times. Best couple in my opinion.

They look more like teacher and student or siblings...and how can u guys forget contest shipping that shipping is the most cannon in the series...and ash and misty look like true lovers

What got me was how Ash is always supporting May. He was there to comfort her when she missed the boat to get to the contest, and he saved her life from falling down a cliff while being attacked by Mageton. Not to mention the Manaphy movie.

They just really seem sweet together

I love this shipping

6 Dawn and Kenny

But in the anime dawn rejects kenny

Kenny got friendzoned

This ship is completely one sided. Kenny likes Dawn, but Dawn does not like Kenny back. Kenny was constantly a dick to Dawn. And Dawn even rejected Kenny and chose Ash over Kenny. - Jackster

Kenny and Dawn is an great ship. of course there are other ships but this is really great! Although Kenny likes Dawn,when he beat Ash in the battle,he did not force Dawn to go on the journey with him as he knows how much cheering for Ash means to Dawn. Kenny also likes to tease Dawn to a certain extent and he watches all of Dawn performance. He really cares about Dawn and will always cheer her up when she is sad.

Dawn congulates Kenny even if she loses the competition and she also an very great friend to Kenny. if she does not like Kenny or does not care about his feeling,she won even hesistated to reject him straightaway and instead she is kind enough to leave an sweet note to him.

7 Jessie and James

I don't get why they're not more popular, they're the ones with the most chemistry and they really care about each other. Rocketshipping is so painfully underrated. But I think I know why and that's because the new audience of each generations are mainly children and they are less likely to understand grown up characters. I've shipped these two since the beginning and my friends didn't get it back then, when they got older they understood what I meant. - Trivona

Deserves to be higher. The only pairing among the main characters I can take seriously, Ash and most of his friends are too young and the younger you are the more likely are breakups.

This is so underrated. Why do people like those unrealistic Ash pairings? He's a kid, his female friends are kids. I find it disturbing how people ship kids so seriously, when the actual adult shippings are underrated.

This is overrated. No one else ships them with other characters. >.> and James deserves better than jessibell 2.0. Like, he should've stayed with jessibell if he was going to marry Jessie. And before u say, manga=/=anime. It makes more sense that way, people. And Jessie doesn't deserve James as a friend, let alone a lover. She's such an awful friend to him, when he tries to make her happy (out of fear, love shouldn't b based on that), blames him when things go wrong, steals from him & gets rid of HIS Pokemon she doesn't like (like jessibell wanted, so y should James b forced to marry jessibell 2.0 again? ) and not even care that she upset him. So no, there is no love that should come out of this toxic, controlling, abusive relationship.

8 Misty and Gary

They both put down ash a lot. & they were rivals before they became Pokémon trainers they became rivals when they broke that pokeball in the river & that was way before Ash met Misty. This shipping is called egoshipping

Well I kind of like this shipping! Dunno if Misty likes Gary but maybe Gary seems to like Misty, is that why Ash and Gary become rivals or what?

But Misty and Gary maybe are meant for each other. What was this shipping name again?

9 Dawn and Paul

AWFUL SHIPPING! Why is this in the top ten? Not only did Paul & Ash have more positive conversations (which is saying something), but they barley communicated at all

Why do people ship this! Dawn clearly doesn't like Paul at all so this ship doesn't make sense.

This ship is so overrated. These characters have barely made contact.

2 CUTE!

10 Cilan and Iris

Cilan is too awesome to have a girlfriend. Need I say more? Also, 5 year age gap. - RiverClanRocks

Cute ship in my opinion. Too bad it doesn't get much support

This is good. Its nice and sweet they protect each other from their own fears.

It's perfect. I got nothing bad to say.

The Newcomers

? Porygon-Z and Rotom

They look adorable together! We need more pokemon/pokemon ships!

The Contenders

11 Gary and Ash

Literally Ash is so gay, he doesn't even consider his female friends as potentially more. Also Gary gets Ash going more than anyone else...and do I need to mention the similar reaction when hearing Gary's name as Brock has to Prof Ivy coincidence I think not. Also the original Japanese hints at Gary and Ash liking each other a lot more

My favorite! Ash looks cuter with a boy than with a girl. He will never truly LOVE any girl. Sure almost every girl has a crush on him, but he really should meet up with Gary again.

This is one of my favorite ships of all time!

yes

12 Bonnie and Max

Well. I saw a picture that Bonnie kissed Max and good they're the youngest couple I seen yet. Yep! I like this they are so cute together!

They look cute together. Best youngest couple in the series

I like this one! It's so cute! They ate so perfect!

PUT IT IN the TOP 10 - TherealSlim_Shady

13 Brock and Nurse Joy

I thinks it's sweet that he can tell all the joys apart and a bit strange

Brock knows which one is which and can tell them all apart is always real sweet with them all! Also, he has a English dub song on them.

That one nurse joy that helped hatched brock's egg I think she'd be a good match for each other. I don't remember the episode, all I know it's in dp. Anyways, Brock helped her get confidence back and showed her that she can do more by helping wild pkmn with their injuries. And now that he's a doctor I think they'd work well together.

What the hell?

14 Brock and Officer Jenny

... & Nurse Joy! Brock knows which one is which and can tell them all apart is always real sweet with them all! Also, he has a English dub song on them.

No. just no.

15 Brendan and May

If you played Pokemon oras you should know this is almost canon.

One of the best shippings in the games and better than anything in the anime

This at least deserves to be in the first page

I voted this because of the manga story.

16 Dawn and Zoey

Awesome girls got along really well and balanced each other out really well

HECK YEAH

It's really cute actually, I didn't watch DP but I looked on the Bulbapedia article and it looked cute.

Dawn and Zoe look really cute together.

Top 5 reasons
1)Dawn and Zoey may be rivals but they are still really close
2)Zoey has defend Dawn from Jessie bullying in an episode and even help Dawn to battle Jessie even if her leg was sprained
3)Dawn blushes many time with Zoey
4)They have many physical touch
5)They are just adorable

17 Calem and Serena

They look cute together, and they're NOT an anime ship like almost every other ship on this list. And Calem is much better than Ash.

How could you not love this ship is better than amour

People say he/she friend-zoned you I didn't see that at least with Serena she seemed real interested in Calem

Calum is you

18 Cassidy and Butch

Cassidy treated Butch way nicer than Jessie EVER treated James, so Neoshipping way better than Rocketshipping!

Cassidy couldn't even remeber butch's name in some episodes but I think they'll look cute together

No, you're just a Jessie hater that fail to see the full picture. - Trivona

19 Froakie and Fennekin

Really cute how froakie cleaned fennikin's tail when he saw her upset and blushed when she thanked him.

They are so adorable together! And anyone who voted for Ash and Serena have to on this one, since these are their Pokemon C:

So cute! its basically ash and serena - pokemon form!

This has to be my favorite pokemonxpokemon shipping.

Gekkouga x Tairenar for the win!

Amourshipping, but Pokémon version.

20 Tony (Ralph's Nidoran) and Maria (Emily's Nidoran)

Both didn't care about their's trainers hate and just wanted to see each other (but would not betray their trainers even though they wouldn't let the see each other)! So sweet and cute! And 100% canon!

I don't know about this episode but it sounds great
